Back in the days when my annual income had not yet topped $14,000, Andy Bowers gave me a hand. In his capacity as Podcasting King of Slate, he hired me to be the substitute host of the Slate Daily Podcast, kicking me a couple hundred bucks a show when their regular folks were out on assignment or otherwise away from the mics. In other words: I owe him one.
He proposed a great panel at South by Southwest Interactive on the maturity and future of podcasting, featuring myself, Jeff Ulrich from Earwolf and Mignon Fogerty (aka Grammar Girl) from Quick & Dirty Tips.
And while you’re at it, check out my pal Mary O’Hara’s panel, on the role of ideology in online jornalism. She’s what I’d call a mega-badass, and I think that, too will be cool.
